Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

World Championship Wrestling
WCW Wednesday Nitro
Mizzou Arena, Columbia, Missouri
January 23, 2002




Tony Schiavone: Good evening ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to WCW Wednesday Nitro, your current number one professional wrestling broadcast! I am your voice of WCW, Tony Schiavone, and alongside me is my colleague, ‘The Professor’ Mike Tenay!

Mike Tenay: Thank you Tony, and fans, we are just four days away from our first pay per view extravaganza of 2002, Sin!

Tony Schiavone: Right you are, Professor.

Ah, there we are. Schiavone cuts The Prof off for needless comments. Bless him.

Mike Tenay: Sin will be coming to you all live from The Pyramid, in Memphis, Tennessee, this Sunday night, and we have a triple main event blockbuster for you all! As made official several weeks ago, ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner will put his WCW World Heavyweight Title on the line for the first time since winning it for the second time, against the four-time Champ, Booker T!

Tony Schiavone: That is a long time rivalry, Professor, and it’s going to get even more nasty tonight when they meet in the parking lot... for an old fashioned fight!

Mike Tenay: That’s correct, Tony; a parking lot brawl is scheduled tonight between those two men. That fight is not sanctioned by WCW President Ric Flair, nor the board of directors, so whatever happens… happens! However, as made official by President Flair earlier this week, two more matches have been made official for Sin: ;The Chosen One’ Jeff Jarrett will get his grudge match against ‘The Iceman’ Dean Malenko, and in a six-man war, the leader of the Four Horsemen, ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels, will team up with fellow Horsemen Lance Storm and ‘The Enforcer’ Cal Anderson to take on ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan and The Outsiders!

Tony Schiavone: It’s new school versus old school in that one, Professor!

Mike Tenay: Shawn Michaels, Cal Anderson, and Lance Storm lead a new incarnation of the Four Horsemen, while Hogan, Kevin Nash, and Scott Hall are all the three nWo originals!

Tony Schiavone: And we all know of the history between Shawn Michaels and his former best friends, The Outsiders!

Mike Tenay: That one will be a good ole fashioned brawl, but Jeff Jarrett and Dean Malenko, now there is a questionable one. Both men have extraordinary skill in technical and mat wrestling, wrestling in the style of their fathers Jerry Jarrett and Boris Malenko, but for Jeff Jarrett, this isn’t a wrestling match, it is revenge!

Tony Schiavone: On our last Nitro of 2001, Dean Malenko made his long awaited return to World Championship Wrestling, preventing The Chosen One from cheating his way to another dirty win. Malenko’s arrival was Jarrett’s downfall, as when forced to wrestle without a steel chair or his trusty guitar, Scott Steiner made Jarrett submit, ending Jarrett’s World Heavyweight Title reign!

Mike Tenay: Jarrett has promised to avenge this so called “screw job” and at Sin, he will finally get his chance! But Jeff better be ready because Dean Malenko is a shooter, and he can, and will, twist Jarrett like a pretzel once they step into that squared circle!

The commentary team finally shuts up, and we get a segment.

Flaunting Authority

“Also Sprach Zarathustra” hits, sending the crowd to their collective feet in cheers. The President, ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair struts out from the entrance chute, a grin on his way. As he points to the back, Kliq-style to mock the nWo, “The Horsemen Theme” hits, bringing out the Four Horsemen, ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels, ‘The Enforcer’ Cal Anderson, Lance Storm, and ‘The Iceman’ Dean Malenko, along with their new “coach”, ‘The Enforcer’ Arn Anderson. The six men make their way down to the ring, and once there, Flair gets a mic from David Penzer, looking happy as can be, and rightfully so; things have been flying the way of the Horsemen ever since their return.

Ric Flair: Missouri University… WOO!


Ric Flair: Mizzou, the Four Horsemen are in the house, and we’re flyin’ high, baby!

Ah, the wonderful cheap pop.

Ric Flair: We arose from the ashes two weeks ago, and the magic is in the air. The Horsemen are alive and well, and we’re sendin’ the New World Order packin’!

Another cheap pop.

Ric Flair: We’ve duped the nWo, and last week on Nitro, you all saw what I saw: The Heartbreak Kid…SHAWN MICHAELS…make his comeback in this very ring, defeating Kevin Nash!

HBK smiles as the crowd adorns him with cheers.

Ric Flair: Oh yeah, Mizzou, you saw it! You saw Shawn Michaels take a beatin’, but he never gave up! Shawn Michaels laid down for nobody, and he fought back! H..B..K kicked some New World Order ass last week, and he looked like the LEADER…of the FOUR…HORSEMEN!

Another cheap pop.

Ric Flair: And at Sin, you’re gonna see it again! The New World Order wanted to throw down some challenges, and I was more than happy ta’ oblige! JEFF JARRETT! There’s no love lost between you and me, kid. I hate you like I hate Hulk Hogan! I hate you like I hate Eric Bischoff! You have a special place in my black heart, Chosen One. You made my life hell for months, you screwed me over more times than I can even remember. You’re a slimy son of a bitch, Jarrett, and at Sin… you’re gettin’ what you got comin’ to ya’!

The crowd cheers as Flair walks over to Malenko and puts his arm around Dean’s shoulder.

Ric Flair: This man right here, is Dean…MALENKO! He’s a man of ONE-THOUSAND holds! He’s gonna bend, snap, and break every limb of yours in ways you can’t even imagine! You’re pissed because the spoiled rich kid got what was comin’ to him!? Well too bad, jack! Dean Malenko made sure you didn’t taint the World Heavyweight Title belt I won fourteen times, and at Sin, you’re gonna be screamin’ for mercy!

Flair walks away from Malenko, going crazy.

Ric Flair: Mercy! Mercy, Mercy! OOOH MERCY! MERCY! MER-WOO-CY! That’ll be you, Jarrett! That’s gonna be you! MERCY!

The crowd cheers Flair as he throws his coat onto the canvas and knee drops it. Arn just rolls his eyes and shakes his head, albeit chuckling. Lance, Dean, and Arn seem nonplussed, but Shawn is absolutely dying. He’s like a kid again, laughing with glee as Flair puts on a show. Flair eventually gets up, and smiling, struts around a bit before regaining his composure.

Ric Flair: I wanna see that at Sin, Dean. I wanna see that knee drop, Ric Flair style baby. WOO!

Cheap pop and a moderate ‘WOO’ back. Flair walks over to Lance and Cal, standing in between the two of them.

Ric Flair: In case you’re wondering, I haven’t forgotten about these two men right here. Cal Anderson, the undefeated Enforcer… Lance Storm, the total wrestling package… these two are teamin’ up with our leader, Shawn Michaels, at Sin! Oh yeah, Missouri! Shawn Michaels, Lance Storm, and Cal Anderson on one side! Hulk Hogan and The Outsiders on the other! It’s Horsemen versus nWo, baby!

Cheap pop yet again. However, Flair just kind of stands around the ring for a while, letting the crowd die down so he can hand the mic over to the Heartbreak Kid. Shawn, sporting his now standard jeans, Horsemen tee, cowboy hat and boots, grimaces a bit as he walks around the ring a bit, his left hand reaching around to grab his back.

Shawn Michaels: As you can see, The Showstopper is still a little banged up from last week. I realize now that I rushed into returnin’ to the ring last week, but if you think that the Heartbreak Kid regrets it, think again! I may have taken one of the biggest ass kickin’s I’ve ever had last week, but at the end of it all, Shawn Michaels was standin’ back where he belonged… a winner!

Cheap pop.

Shawn Michaels: It’d been four years since I had my arm raised by a ref; it’d been four long, empty years without having someone tell me I was a somebody, I was a winner. Well last week, Nick Patrick told me I was a winner… and Kevin Nash, you told me that you were my *bitch*!

The crowd cheers as the “new” HBK regains some of that old swagger.

Shawn Michaels: I know now that there ain’t no way I can step into this ring and wrestle here tonight, Missouri, but at Sin, you can guarantee that Shawn Michaels is gonna be standin’ in this ring with his fellow Horsemen! Me, Lance Storm, and Cal Anderson, we’re gonna steal the show like no other! Hulk Hogan, Scotty, Big Kev… sorry boys, but you’re time is up! The Four Horsemen are the new sheriffs in town! We’re leadin’ the charge, and the nWo is retreatin’ with your tails tucked between your legs! It’s time to realize, that you are a dyin’,

New NewNew
New New

We’re not going to find out what kind of dying thing the New World Order is because out they come! ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan leads the charge, The Outsiders right by his side. Hogan has the microphone in hand for once, while Eric Bischoff shuffles off to the side, making his appearance, but letting the wrestlers have the spotlight. In the ring, the Horsemen are all looking mighty upset. What a shocker~!

Hulk Hogan: Whoa, whoa, whoa, dude, let’s just pull back on those rains, brother! The New World Order ain’t goin’ anywhere but to the top of the peak, jack!

Cheap heat for Hogan.

Hulk Hogan: You think that because you have a name to your group of misfits that you’re gonna kill the most dominant and lethal corporation known to mankind!? Well lemme tell ya’ somethin’, brother, that just ain’t gonna be the case!

Ah, more cheap heat.

Hulk Hogan: Shawn Michaels, you’ve always had your head in the clouds, jack! You stand here, preachin’ about your God and how He and the Four Horsemen are gonna rid Dubya-See-Dubya of the New World Order, the n-Dubya-o is just bidin’ their time, brother! Hollywood Hogan has a master plan, dude, and when you least expect it, when your curled up in your little safety blanket, the New World Order is goin’ on a preemptive strike!

The crowd boos Hogan more than before, surprisingly, but he doesn’t even seem to care. He’s actually buying what he’s spewing. As Hogan glares at the Horsemen from the stage, Kevin Nash takes over for the icon.

Kevin Nash: What Hollywood here is sayin’… is’ one-hundred percent right. Shawn, now that you’re here in Dubya-See-Dubya, Flair over there and the rest of his Horsemen… you all think that Shawn Michaels is some Savior to the masses! Shawn Michaels will not save you, Flair! Shawn Michaels will not save World Championship Wrestling, and Shawn Michaels will not save these people!

Lots o’ boos for Nash.

Kevin Nash: No matter what that backstabbin’ piece of crap spews, it changes nothing! Survey’s in, boys, and the New World Order… is takin’ over!

And more heat for the nWo Scott Hall decides to get in on it… he’s still around?

Scott Hall: ‘Ey yo… tha’ survey is in, an’ tha’ n-Dubya-o… is gon’ kick tha’ legs out from unda’neath tha’ Four Horsemen… an’ everytha’ng’s gon’ come crashin’ down.

The crowd lays into Hall with boos too, but the drunkard just grins and twirls his toothpick in his mouth.

Scott Hall: Hahahaha… chalk one up… fo’ the bad guys, Naitch.

The crowd boos ‘em some more, and Hall hands the mic back over to Nash, who stares down HBK and the rest of the Horsemen.

Kevin Nash: Ya’ know something, Flair, the New World Order has some news for you. Scott, Hollywood, and I… we talked about your precious main event you want for Sin, and to be honest… we’re not very impressed. In fact, we don’t even think we’re gonna compete at Sin!

This gets Nash some huge boos, as well, the crowd clearly wants to see the match. Workrate galore~! Nash shrugs his shoulders and smirks, while Hall laughs hysterically. Hogan just keeps glaring at Flair and co., although he too has a slight smirk on his face. In the ring, Lance Storm and Cal Anderson seem ready to attack, but Arn and Dean calm the two down. HBK is livid too, wanting another piece of Nash, and a piece of Hogan and Hall. Flair, however, is grinning.

Ric Flair: You three think you’re not gonna compete at Sin? Well let’s think again! I’M RIC FLAIR! I run the show around here, chief! I’m the Dubya-See-WOO-Dubya…PRESIDENT! If I say you’re wrestlin’ at Sin, then you’re wrestlin’!

Cheap pop.

Ric Flair: You know the consequences of no showing an event! Just ask Bischoff up there what happens when you can’t attend an event! He’ll send you home! He’ll kick you to the curb for months on end! No money, no appearances, nothin’! Right, Eric? That’s what you did to me, remember? Nineteen-ninety-eight, Bischoff… you kicked my ass to the curb! So Eric, if your boys don’t wanna show up at Sin, you can tell them in great detail what’s gonna happen next! And without Hollywood Hogan or The Outsiders, what are the runnin’ odds of the New World Order surviving the onslaught of the Four Horsemen?

Flair grins ear-to-ear, knowing he has just duped the New World Order. Nash looks incredibly pissed, but Flair keeps going.

Ric Flair: Oh, but don’t worry boys; I’ll do ya’ one better! See, I know how if the nWo ain’t motivated for a real right, there’s an easy way out! There’s a simple lay down, a finger poke… but that’s not happenin’ at Sin! Because President Flair is gonna up the ante! Hogan, Nash, Hall… whoever scores the pin at Sin… can have a WCW World Heavyweight Title match next week on Nitro!

That gets the crowd cheering, and also gets the attention of Michaels, Storm, and Anderson. Storm and Anderson nod their heads, liking the chance of wrestling for the Title, while Michaels smirks and thinks of that possibility. Nash and Hall are both satisfied, but Hollywood Hogan is not. He just smirks and shakes his head, wiggling his fingers at Nash, demanding for the mic once again. He gets it, and talks.

Hulk Hogan: That’s cute, Ric, real cute. But lemme tell ya’ somethin’, brother, I don’t need no stinkin’ title match! As I recall, my contract clearly states that I get a guaranteed Dubya-See-Dubya World Heavyweight Title match at any time I want within the next year since I retired your ass at Starrcade!

That draws Hogan a lot of jeers, and Flair is visibly pissed off by that one. Hogan grins at Flair's reaction, knowing he put Naitch in his place. The two icons stare each other down for a while before Flair brings the mic back up to his mouth.

Ric Flair: Ya' know Hogan, you and I both know you can talk the talk. I'm not gonna deny the fact you beat me at Starrcade; you RETIRED me at Starrcade! But no matter what, your ass is competing at Sin in that main event... and tonight, you're stepping into this ring too!

The crowd cheers while Hogan looks intrigued at Flair's announcement. Flair, however, is no longer looking at Hogan, but at his three Horsemen available to wrestle. After eyeing the three men for quite some time, Flair stays fixated on one man.

Ric Flair: Hulk Hogan, you may be the biggest superstar in the history of this sport - bigger than the Nature Boy - but tonight, let's see if your star power can hang with one of the greatest grapplers this company has, LANCE STORM!

The crowd cheers, and Lance Storm, always stoic, can't help but smirk and nod his head, looking forward to this monumental chance. Hogan, however, shakes his head at Flair, pissed at Naitch flaunting his authority. However, Hogan shouts out to Storm, letting him know of his future loss. Storm just smiles at Hogan, unable to wait to snap Hogan in two with his mat skills. Flair nods his head, but he's not done from the looks of it, his eyes locking both on Cal Anderson and Dean Malenko.

Ric Flair: Ya' know what though, I think I'm gonna flaunt my authority a little bit more tonight, Missouri! The Enforcer and The Iceman here, they're itching to step into the ring tonight too! And I know there's a certain wrestler in the back who wants a piece of you, Curt Hennig; I'm talking about Hugh Morris! So tonight, let's have Cal Anderson, let's have Dean Malenko, and let's have Hugh Morris on one side. On the other side, Chosen One, Jeff Jarrett, it's gonna be you, Scott Hall, and Curt Hennig!

The crowd cheers yet again, and while Hennig and Hall both look pissed, Cal Anderson, Dean Malenko, and surprisingly Jeff Jarrett, all look content with that match. "Horsemen" hits again, and the Four Horsemen and New World Order stare each other down.

Tony Schiavone: Oh my! Hollywood Hogan versus Lance Storm, here tonight!? Cal Anderson, Dean Malenko, and Hugh Morris versus Jeff Jarrett, Scott Hall, and Curt Hennig!? This Nitro is one of the biggest ever!

Oh Tony, you slay me.

Mike Tenay: Lance Storm has the opportunity of a lifetime here tonight against Hulk Hogan, and that six man tag match is a triple preview of what we can expect at Sin! Folks, this is going to be a wild night here on Nitro, but we're only just beginning! Stay tuned, ladies and gentlemen, because up next, it's Shane Helms and Mike Awesome versus Konnan and Chavo Guerrero! Don't turn the channel!


When Nitro returns, 'The Career Killer' Mike Awesome is already standing in the ring. "Sugar" hits first, bringing out the long reigning WCW Cruiserweight Champion, 'Sugar' Shane Helms, a horde of Sugar Babies at his side. Helms, the ever cocky youngster, sports a silky silver vest and baggy tights, and his coveted Cruiserweight Title belt on his waist. As Helms gets into the ring, he keeps his fun going, only for "Filthy" to hit, cutting off said fun. Konnan and Chavo Guerrero come out onto the stage, both men looking ready to fight. While they come down the ramp, Mike Tenay states that Chavo Guerrero is nowhere near 100% tonight, and probably should not be wrestling, but has agreed to the match anyways, wanting to get some revenge on Shane Helms. The Professor always highlights that Super Crazy tried to wrestle and fight Shane Helms last month when he was not 100% either because of a concussion, and ended up receiving another concussion at the hands of Helms, forcing him out of action. As the two men get into the ring, Konnan instructs Chavo to start the match in the corner, not wanting to have Chavo injure himself further heading into Sin.

Match One
Chavo Guerrero & Konnan vs. Mike Awesome & Shane Helms
Tag Team Match

When Konnan and Chavo team up, and Konnan wrestles the majority of the match, trouble ensues for the work rate. However, K-Dawg has an extra spring in his step, trying to show he is worthy of wrestling for the North American Title. Konnan and Mike Awesome square off to start, but Awesome dominates Konnan, battering him across with the ring with his stiff strong-style strikes. Despite taking a beating, Konnan fights back from Awesome, ducking a lariat and knocking Awesome down with a rolling lariat instead. With Awesome staggering, Konnan tosses him into the heel corner, wanting a piece of Shane Helms. Helms is tagged in, despite not wanting to enter the ring, and is forced to combat K-Dawg. Helms avoids Konnan multiple times in the ring, but when he actually tries to wrestle K-Dawg, he shows he can keep up with the big man. Helms uses his speed to fly around Konnan, hitting multiple dropkicks and even a swinging DDT. However, Konnan knows the high-flying style from his days in Mexico and ECW, and ends up reversing a tilt-a-whirl head scissors attempt into a backbreaker, showing Konnan actually has some talent. Shocking.

Konnan works over Helms with some big slams and suplexes, and with Helms’ selling of the moves to make them seem more high-impact, the crowd is digging it. However, again, Shane Helms shows he can play with the big boys and when counters a Konnan rolling clothesline by swinging around K-Dawg’s arm to hit a second swinging DDT! From there, the heels isolate Konnan, working him over for only a few minutes before K-Dawg blocks a Shane Helms shining wizard and plants him with a clothesline. Helms attempts to prevent a tag from being made, but Konnan makes the long awaited tag to Chavo Guerrero. The crowd is loving it as Chavito squares off with Helms, rocking him with big right hands. Mike Awesome gets back into the match, and he and Konnan end up on the outside, fighting on the entrance ramp. In the ring, Chavo keeps beating down on Helms, sending him scurrying from the ring after a dropkick. Shane Helms runs over to the timekeeper, and grabs his steel chair from him. Helms reenters the ring, and starts swinging at Chavo! However, Guerrero knows all about dirty play, and ducks the swing. Chavito kicks Helms in the midsection before forcing the chair out of Helms’ hands. With the chair in Chavito’s hands, Guerrero swings, and clocks Helms across the back! Referee Billy Silverman calls for the bell, seeing at that was a blatant disregard of the rules.

Shane Helms & Mike Awesome def. Chavo Guerrero & Konnan at 7:49

The crowd actually cheers the finish, simply because Helms staggers across the ring, clutching his back in pain. As Helms staggers about the ring, he ends up walking right into a Chavo chair shot, this one right in the skull! The Cruiserweight Champion collapses, but on the outside, life ain’t as sweet for the Filthy Animals. Mike Awesome is simply beating down on Konnan, and after multiple stiff right hands, Awesome scoops Konnan off his feet and slams him down onto the entrance ramp with an Awesome Bomb! Chavo hurries out of the ring to check on Konnan, and Mike Awesome walks up the ramp to the back, his back turned to the chaos he left behind him, his message already sent.

Tony Schiavone: How’s that for a taste of your own medicine, Shane Helms!?

Mike Tenay: The WCW Cruiserweight Champion has been using cheap tactics like steel chair attacks throughout the past several months – including last week – but tonight, it has finally backfired! Chavo Guerrero, a man with a deep history of fighting dirty, knew the chair shot was coming, and has laid the Champion out with that steel chair, just days before Sin!

Tony Schiavone: What a momentum shift for Chavo Guerrero as he prepares for his Cruiserweight Title shot in just four days, live on pay per view at Sin! But Konnan, however, that is a different story.

Mike Tenay: Konnan is a fighter and a competitor, but he has just been manhandled by Mike Awesome these past weeks.

Tony Schiavone: But Konnan has earned his North American Title match at Sin by defeating Mike Awesome in a non-title match!

Mike Tenay: Konnan did indeed defeat Mike Awesome two weeks ago, but The Career Killer has just been dominant.

Tony Schiavone: Well I have hope that Konnan is going to somehow beat the odds and defeat Awesome for a second straight time and win the North American Title!

Mike Tenay: He has a great chance to do so, Tony, and every member of the Filthy Animals have a chance to win WCW gold at Sin! Chavo Guerrero will challenge Shane Helms for the Cruiserweight Title, Konnan and Mike Awesome will lock horns for the North American Title, and Billy Kidman and Rey Misterio will team up to take on the Young Lions and the Natural Born Thrillers for the WCW Tag Team Championship!

As the commentators look into the camera, we cut to the back.


We’re in the interview area where Scott Hudson is standing by with the WCW World Heavyweight Champion, ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner and his whore valet, Midajah. Steiner isn’t dressed to be classy, for a party, or even to wrestle; he is dressed to fight. Sporting a long sleeve black under armour shirt and jeans, there is no sunglasses or chain plate over his head. Scott Steiner is a school yard bully ready for a challenger.

Scott Hudson: Ladies and gentlemen, I am Scott Hudson and standing beside me right now, is your WCW World Heavyweight Champion, Freakzilla, ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner.

Before Hudson can even ask a question, Steiner starts talking.

Scott Steiner: Look chump, you don’t need to ask me any frickin’ questions tonight ‘cuz I already know what I need ta’ say!

Steiner takes his title belt off of his chest, staring at it for a few seconds.

Scott Steiner: Tonight isn’t about this World Heavyweight Title of mine. I love this big piece of gold more than life itself, but there are still other things that the man Scott Steiner cares about. Some of those things are my number one freak right here, Midajah, and the other is my brother, Rick Steiner! Rick ain’t just my brother, but my best friend! We’ve been Tag Team Champions together across the world, and when Booker T decided to take him out last week, he crossed a line!

Steiner glares around the area, completely pissed off.

Scott Steiner: Booker T ran his mouth off too much for his own damn good, so the way I see it, when I wrecked his Cadillac two weeks ago, that was just evening up the score. But takin’ out muh brother!? Booker, you got one hell of an ass kickin’ comin’ you’re way tonight!

Steiner breaks off, scowling.

Scott Steiner: You’re nothin’ but a punk ass bitch, Booker! You ain’t done a damn thing in this company as of late, just lose, lose, lose. Me, I’m on the top of my game, and tonight, I am gonna destroy you!

Steiner glares into the camera menacingly, the promo seemingly done. However, Steiner keeps going.

Scott Steiner: If you somehow survive the bloody beat down I’m about to give you, I promise you, Booker, I will finish off whatever pieces remain at Sin! I’ve worked too hard for this WCW World Heavyweight Title, and I’m not gonna fall off my peak so soon after winnin’ it!

Steiner gives the camera one more hard look before walking off, letting the show cut to a…


When Nitro returns, we are still backstage.

Remember Me?

We’re backstage outside the New World Order locker room. ‘The Chosen One’ Jeff Jarrett stands outside the door, holding a guitar over his shoulder as he looks into the camera, apparently pissed off.

Jeff Jarrett: This past month has been complete and utter hell! I don’t know if anyone has realized it, but The Chosen One has been screwed out of his nWo World Heavyweight Title, and since then, I haven’t had the opportunity to do a damn thing!

Jarrett spits on the concrete floor, letting out some of his frustration.

Jeff Jarrett: Ric Flair, ever since he became the WCW President, has made me a nonfactor. You haven’t seen Jeff Jarrett get the chance to wrestle, you haven’t seen Jeff Jarrett get the chance to have some mic time. No, instead, I’m relegated to standing here, having to buy my own damn cameraman to film this!

Jarrett pushes his sunglasses up his nose and then tightens his grip on his acoustic guitar.

Jeff Jarrett: Scott Steiner, he’s gotten to run around with my World Heavyweight Title, and Booker T, that stupid slap nut I beat at Starrcade, gets my damn title shot! They get all the glory, while I’m stuck battlin’ the damn Four Horsemen!

Jarrett scowls, still angry, but raises his head back up and looks into the camera, suddenly motivated.

Jeff Jarrett: The only good thing out of all of this, is that in four days, at Sin, I get Dean Malenko in the ring. Malenko, you stupid vanilla midget son of a bitch, you’ve been Ric Flair’s precious lackey in all of this. It was you who cost me my World Title! You took away everything from me!

Jarrett is almost in tears as he finishes, that furious about how everything has fallen for Jarrett. When The Chosen One starts speaking again, he is quiet and serious, sounding very confident in himself.

Jeff Jarrett: At Sin, Malenko, I am gonna slap you in my Figure Four, and I’m gonna break your freakin’ knee! I’m gonna take this guitar in my hand, and I’m gonna break it over your head so damn hard you’re gonna regret ever comin’ back to my company!

The look in Jarrett’s eye is maniacal.

Jeff Jarrett: The end is here for you, Dean Malenko. I’m gonna end your career at Sin, and afterwards, me and the n-Dubya-o are gonna dispose of the Four Horsemen once and for all. This war is close to an end, and it will be the New World Order that stands tall. And when we rise above the rest, and the Four Horsemen are left in a pile of ashes, I’m goin’ after what is still rightfully mine! Scott Steiner, Booker T, whoever is standin’ the World Heavyweight Champion, I’m givin’ ya’ fair warning right now: when the New World Order stands victorious, I am comin’ back for my property, and I will once again be, World Heavyweight Champion!

Jarrett opens the door to the locker room, returning to the nWo locker room as we cut to the ring.

Tony Schiavone: Those are some strong words from Jeff Jarrett!

Mike Tenay: While Jeff Jarrett may be in denial about why he is no longer the World Heavyweight Champion, it doesn’t change the fact that he is dead set on his belief on that issue, and he wants his Title back!

We cut away from the commentary and shift to the ring, where The Natural Born Thrillers, the Young Lions, and the Filthy Animals are all in the ring, referee Scott Dickenson doing his best to keep them separated. After a few seconds, Mike Sanders, Johnny Stamboli, Sean O’Haire, and Billy Kidman exit the ring, allowing the three men about to wrestle prepare for action.

Match Two
Chuck Palumbo (w/Sean O’Haire) vs. Mark Jindrak (w/Natural Born Thrillers ) vs. Rey Misterio (w/Billy Kidman)
Triple Threat Match

These three men surprisingly put on a show in this one, mixing some big hits and athletic ability. The two men who have been able to stay peaceful through this ordeal, Palumbo and Misterio, team up to start the match, working over Mark Jindrak by using Palumbo’s raw strength and Rey-Rey’s blinding speed. Within a minute Jindrak has been left for dead after Palumbo plants him with a Jungle Kick and Misterio slams down the exclamation point with a springboard leg drop from the third rope. However, chaos ensues when the two men both want to pin Jindrak for the victory. As a result, the peace ends with Chuck Palumbo and Rey Misterio getting into an all out brawl, that to no one’s surprise, sees Chuck Palumbo wipe the floor with Misterio.

Palumbo ends up rocking Misterio with a clothesline and then tosses him over the top rope to the outside, military press style, right onto Mike Sanders and Johnny The Bull! Palumbo goes through the second and third ropes moments later though, as Jindrak tosses him from the ring. Palumbo joins the three men in the chaos, but Mark Jindrak shows off his aerial maneuvers by running and leaping over the top rope, corkscrewing his body over the top rope, and knocking down Misterio, Palumbo, and his two partners! The action intensifies on the outside, as Stamboli wants to fight Misterio and Palumbo, leading to O’Haire and Kidman getting involved. Johnny Stamboli ends up getting clotheslined over the guardrail and into the crowd by O’Haire, only for Billy Kidman to jump from his feet, over the guardrail, and onto Stamboli and hit a swinging hurricanrana! Both men wipe out on the concrete, and Sean O’Haire climbs up onto the security guardrail, capping that off with a Seanton Bomb to both men!

The action gets back into the ring, only for Misterio to score another highlight, leaping from the apron onto the third rope, and knocking both Palumbo and Jindrak down with a leaping double clothesline! Chuck Palumbo keeps the spotty pace going, as minutes later he hip tosses Rey Misterio, flipping him upside down and slamming him into the corner turnbuckles! Matching his strength with some speed, he then climbs up to the top and knocks Jindrak off his feet with a missile dropkick. The three men really don’t slow down, as Misterio ends up spiking Palumbo with a casadora into a bulldog, and climbs up to the top turnbuckle, looking to finish the match off. However, Jindrak gets back onto his feet from taking a bump and climbs up top with him. With both men standing on the top turnbuckle, Jindrak leaps up into the air, and flips Rey off the top turnbuckle and back onto the canvas with his Super Frankensteiner! It takes Jindrak a few seconds to get back up to his feet, but when he does, he gets drilled right back onto his back with a Jungle Kick from Chuck Palumbo! Palumbo quickly makes the pin, and Dickenson makes the three count, ending this spotty affair.

Chuck Palumbo def. Mark Jindrak and Rey Misterio at 9:31

Chuck Palumbo rolls out of the ring after the match, and he and Sean O’Haire try to celebrate this big momentum shifting victory, but the party is short lived. Johnny Stamboli and Mike Sanders come sprinting over, attacking the two men. The four men start exchanging a flurry of fists, with Mark Jindrak joining in soon after, giving the Tag Champs the 3-on-2 odds they’re used to. However, the Filthy Animals know how to insert themselves into the action: After hitting the ropes far opposite the five men, the Animals come charging back and leap over the top rope, hitting supermen-style planchas! All seven men collapse down to the protective mats, and Doug Dillinger and his horde of security men are on the scene seconds later to break the three teams up, preventing more brawling from ensuing.

Tony Schiavone: It’s total chaos in the WCW Tag Team Title scene, Professor!

Mike Tenay: The Filthy Animals and the Young Lions both want the WCW Tag Team gold, fans, and Mike Sanders and the Natural Born Thrillers are looking to keep those belts by any means necessary! Chuck Palumbo gets the big victory here tonight, but he and Sean O’Haire are going to have to really bring something special if they want to leave Sin once again, Tag Team Champions!

Tony Schiavone: The same could be said for the Filthy Animals, and even for the Thrillers if they’re going to be keeping their titles!

Mike Tenay: Any team could walk out of Sin as the Tag Team Champions – I don’t know which team could even be described as a favorite, they’re all so evenly matched – but I can’t ensure you that this match is going to be one heck of a contest! You have six of the hungriest competitors in WCW, and six daredevils who will put their body on the line for those Tag Belts!

Tony Schiavone: Very true, Professor.

Oh man, you gotta love that charisma folks.

Mike Tenay: Alrighty fans, we have to take a commercial break, but you stay tuned because still to come, is that Booker T and Scott Steiner in a parking lot brawl, Hulk Hogan clashing with Lance Storm, and that six man tag of ‘The Chosen One’ Jeff Jarrett, Scott Hall, and Curt Hennig taking on Dean Malenko, Cal Anderson, and Hugh Morris!


When we return, we are backstage once more, with the men just talked about.

Four Filler

We’re backstage in the locker room of the Four Horsemen. Cal Anderson and Dean Malenko are warming up, stretching for their match. There’s a knock on the door, and their tag team partner, Hugh Morris, walks in. He looks ready for this one.

Arn Anderson: Ya’ ready for this one kid? The n-Dubya-o is comin’ out for blood, your blood at that.

Morris just nods his head before answering.

Hugh Morris: I’ve been waitin’ a damn lifetime to get my hands on Curt Hennig! You Horsemen may have a vendetta against the New World Order, but you all remember, that me and a lot of the boys in the back, we have a score to settle with them too!

Ric Flair walks up to Hugh, nodding his head, before clapping him on the shoulder.

Ric Flair: Don’t worry, Hugh. We know you got a score to settle with the nWo, and that’s why I’m givin’ you this shot. You got three of ‘em tonight, and in four days at Sin, it’s just you and Curt Hennig, one-on-one. We all got faith in you, so go out there tonight, go out there at Sin, and show the New World Order what WCW is all about!

Morris nods and roars out a “yeah” before Cal slaps him on the chest, letting him know it’s time for their match. Cal, Dean, and Hugh all leave the locker room, leaving just Flair, Arn, Shawn Michaels, and Lance Storm in the locker room.

Arn Anderson: Alright, Lance, we know what we’re dealing with when it comes to Hulk Hogan. Here’s what you need to focus on…

As Arn, Flair, and Michaels all start to strategize with Storm, we cut away...

…and right into a video we all want to see.

One More Week – Lions Will Be Tamed

A series of numbers flickers all across the screen in rapid-fire motion, going so fast and their motions erratic as the numbers move across the screen. The numbers eventually all vanish off the screen from the corners, leading into the same video from last week – a shadowy figure hitting a STO to a random wrestler, and the figure raising his arms out to his sides, his back to the camera. The hair is long, but the color can’t be made out. Like last week, the man is holding a bottle of champagne in each hand. The erratic and quick moving numbers jump back onto the screen, erasing the shot of the figure. The numbers move across the screen in a way I can’t describe and end up forming a bottle of champagne (presumably). After standing still for the several seconds, the bottle explodes across the ring, and the tiny numbers end up forming a bigger phrase stating: He’s Better Than Everyone… And He’s Back In 7 Days.

As the video ends, we cut back to ringside.

“Horsemen” hits, bringing out the two members off the Four Horsemen, ‘The Enforcer’ Cal Anderson and ‘The Iceman’ Dean Malenko, as well as the WCW representee, Hugh Morris. The three men all get a lot of cheers, but let’s be real: Hugh’s getting them for being associated with Malenko and Anderson, and those two, while over, are getting even better responses because of their association with the Four Horsemen. Fans are gullible, folks. As the three men get into the ring, “Rockhouse” hits, bringing out the three heels of the New World Order; ‘The Chosen One’ Jeff Jarrett, ‘The Bad Guy’ Scott Hall, and ‘The Perfect One’ Curt Hennig. The three men are booed mercilessly, especially Jarrett, who is incredibly fired up. He threateningly points his guitar at the crowd before finally aiming it at The Iceman as the nWo trio walk down the entrance ramp. The three men finally get in the ring, and after some excellent taunting by Scott Hall and Curt Hennig (tooth pick throw from Hall at a kid, Hennig spitting and swatting his gum at a bunch of {drunken} college guys), referee Charles Robinson gets everyone settled for the match to begin, Dean Malenko and Curt Hennig starting things off.

Match Three
Cal Anderson, Dean Malenko, Hugh Morris vs. New World Order
Six Man Tag Match

This match was hyped as a triple preview for Sin, and overall, it delivered. Dean Malenko shows he hasn’t missed a beat in his old age, schooling Curt Hennig in the early goings of the match with his technical ability, taking Hennig to the canvas and quickly working over several body parts. The undefeated Cal Anderson gets his turn moments later, and he mixes that same technical style of wrestling with stiff strikes, really doing a number on Curt Hennig. Hugh Morris gets a crack at Hennig after the two Horsemen soften him up, and while the big man is able to get the crowd going after a high elevation scoop slam, Scott Hall is able to throw his leg out and get a kick in at Morris’ lower back when the big man hits the ropes. What follows is a Hennig lariat and a New World Order beat down.

The three men go to work on Morris, with Scott Hall and Jeff Jarrett mainly featuring in the isolation period on Morris. Jarrett shows a new intensity as he goes after Morris, not giving the big man any time to recuperate from his strikes; if Morris kicks out of a pin, instead of Jarrett complaining to Robinson of a slow count, he is right back on Hugh with another move or strike. Scott Hall, however, is the opposite. The charismatic drunk is effective in his offense, but spends just as much time showboating and taunting Morris and/or the crowd than actually wearing the resilient fatty down. This ends up being his undoing, as when The Bad Guy locks Morris in an abdominal stretch, Hall spends too much time taunting than adding torque to the hold, allowing Morris to get the ropes. Several moments later, with Hall believing Hugh to be too injured to put up a fight, ends up taking a vicious lariat, sending the two men down. The Lone Wolf ends up making the tag to Jarrett, but Morris has already made the tag to Cal Anderson by the time Jarrett gets into the ring.

Cal Anderson and Dean Malenko lead the charge into the ring, erupting a 2 on 3 brawl that the two Horsemen somehow manage to control. Cal takes it to both Hennig and Hall, while Jarrett and Malenko slug it out. The Enforcer ends up clotheslining Curt Hennig up and over the top rope to the outside, while The Iceman scores with a dropkick. Back on the apron, Morris calls for – and receives – the tag from Anderson. Cal exits the ring to pursue Hennig, while Dean Malenko takes over Cal’s battle with Hall so Morris can go after the legal man, Jeff Jarrett. Morris gets Jarrett rocking with big right hands, and makes the mistake of trying to power bomb Jarrett. Just like Billy Kidman, you can’t power bomb The Chosen One~! Jarrett fights off of Morris’ shoulders with right hands before landing on his feet. Seconds later after a kick to Morris’ gut, Jarrett plants Morris with The Stroke! Jarrett covers Morris, and as Robinson makes the count, Scott Hall holds Dean Malenko in the corner, and the nWo gets the 1-2-3!

New World Order def. Hugh Morris, Cal Anderson, and Dean Malenko at 8:13

Scott Hall releases his grip on Dean Malenko, and goes over to celebrate with Jeff Jarrett while Cal Anderson and Curt Hennig get back into the ring. The three nWo guys try to celebrate the win, but the WCW gang isn’t having it. Jarrett turns around to get his guitar from a stagehand, and Cal Anderson and Hugh Morris attack! Cal Anderson lays into Scott Hall with right hands, and after a particular big right hand, knocks The Bad Guy down. Hall rolls out of the ring, and Curt Hennig is sent over the top rope to the outside a second time with a clothesline, this time courtesy of Hugh Morris. Jeff Jarrett turns around, only to find 1-on-3 odds. Jarrett knows what will happen if he sticks around in the ring, and quickly breaks the guitar on the ring canvas. Holding just the broken neck, Jarrett points the fragmented end at Malenko threateningly before quickly exiting the ring, joining his compatriots up at the entrance ramp. The six men have the epic stare down as the nWo retreat to the back, slowly backing away.

Tony Schiavone: Now that’s a sight we’re used to seeing folks; Jeff Jarrett running with his tail tucked between his legs!

Mike Tenay: Jeff Jarrett knew better than to try and take on those three angry warriors; he’ll live to fight another day, and that day is this Sunday, at Sin! The New World Order grabs the victory tonight, and at Sin, The Chosen One will be looking to extract that revenge he is seeking on Dean Malenko with a win over the Iceman.

Tony Schiavone: Dean Malenko will be ready for the fight though, ladies and gentlemen! He is a Four Horsemen, and he’ll be looking for blood at Sin!

Mike Tenay: The same can be said when Hugh Morris and Curt Hennig square off, and of course, definitely when Hulk Hogan and The Outsiders take on ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels, Lance Storm, and Cal Anderson! We have to take a commercial break, but stay tuned because up next, ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan versus Lance Storm, and Booker T and World Heavyweight Champion, Scott Steiner, meet in the parking lot!


When Nitro returns, we’re not at ringside, but we’re not in the backstage area either… we’re in the parking lot!

Bringing That Middle School Feel

It is pitch black outside in the parking lot here in Columbia, but we get some quality lighting… in the form of the headlights of cars. A bunch of cars are parked to form a circle in between them, all the cars’ lights on. I hope they know they’ll kill their batteries doing that! Booker T is standing in the middle of the circle, shadow boxing. He’s ready to fight. His wrists, hands, and even fingers are taped up, and instead of just trunks and pads, he’s in sweatpants and a gray hoodie. This isn’t a wrestling match in a heated arena; it’s a closed-fisted street fight in the cold winds of Missouri in the winter. A bunch of wrestlers and staff members of WCW are in the parking lot too, most of them sitting on the roof of the cars or next to them; some are even sitting in the cars themselves, presumably with the heaters on to stay warm. ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner is nowhere to be found yet, but Booker T is ready for him, whenever he shows… *cough* the end of the show *cough*

We then cut back to the ringside, and a few seconds later, “Horsemen” hits, bringing the crowd to their feet as the former North American Champion, Lance Storm, walks out onto stage. Sporting his metallic black tights, Storm walks down the ramp, ‘The Enforcer’ Arn Anderson by his side, giving him tips here and there. Schiavone and Tenay heavily hype how important of a match this is to Lance Storm, and how big of an upset it would be to knock of ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan. As Storm gets into the ring, the orange skinned goblin himself appears. “Voodoo Child” hits, bringing out Hogan to a plethora of jeers (albeit some cheers too). Hogan is in his usual swarm of accessories – bandana, shades, weight belt, easy-to-rip nWo tee, colored beard, feather boas, and now, a can of spray paint – as he struts down the entrance ramp, strumming on that air guitar of his. Hogan gets into the ring after far too much stalling, and after more stalling to get all of those accessories off, Randy ‘Pee-Wee’ Anderson calls for the bell to start our sanctioned main event.

Main Event
Hulk Hogan vs. Lance Storm (w/Arn Anderson)
Singles Match

This match is better known as, the greatest work rate match Hulk Hogan has this year (or any year, for that matter, in the past decade). Since this is indeed a Hollywood Hogan match, there is still the usual stalling to start the match, equipped with a lot of taunting and showboating, both to Storm and to the crowd. Shit on Hogan’s wrestling skills all you want, but even now, the man can still get the crowd to hate him (and love him, for that matter). Once the two finally lock up, Hogan uses his “experience”, as Schiavone calls it, to overpower Storm, shoving the Canadian down to the canvas several times. However, when Storm gets his chance, he shoots right in on Hogan. One second the two men are in a collar-and-elbow, and the next, Lance Storm is spinning this way and that, tweaking Hogan’s limbs and joints, working over the icon’s neck, shoulders, arms, and wrists before actually taking Hogan down to the canvas so he can do a number on Hollywood’s legs and knees. The most surprising part? Hogan actually sells the offense, yelling out in pain with each torque.

The technical wizardry Storm has over Hogan lasts for quite some time, but the Hulkster is eventually able to crawl to the ropes, holding onto that bottom rope for dear life before rolling out of the ring, limping away from ringside. Taking one last look at the fired up Lance Storm, Hogan throws his arms at him, signifying he’s had enough. However, Storm has other plans in mind. The Canucker heads over to the ropes, and placing his hands on the top rope, leaps over them, causing Hogan to flinch. However, Storm fakes Hollywood out, as he only jumps over the ropes to the apron. As Hogan looks up, wondering why he hasn’t crashed to the mats, Storm jumps off the apron, hitting Hogan with a double axe handle, a move Hollywood can sell better than a leaping plancha. The beat down continues on the outside, as Lance holds nothing back, stomping and kicking at the orange skinned goblin with stiff strikes before lighting the big man up with big chops. However, this is Hollywood Hogan, so the tides have to turn. Indeed they do, as Hollywood reverses a whip and sends Storm face first into the steel ring post!

With the momentum back on his side, Hogan slowly beats down Storm on the outside with right hands, along with a few face slams onto the side of the ring. The action gets back into the ring, where Hulk continues his slow beat down on Storm, working the tactician in the corner with his overbearing punches. Hogan has to break out the big guns – a nasty scoop slam and eventually a semi-release sidewalk slam – to try and get the victory over Storm, but the former North American Champion won’t quit that easy, kicking out every time. The match reaches a point where the crowd knows the tide will turn, and they get behind Storm – at least more so than before – cheering him on for the needed comeback.

Said comeback occurs when Hogan, too smug for his own good, takes too much time taunting the pro-WCW crowd as he prepares to execute his lethal Big Boot. After whipping Storm into the ropes following the taunting, the Horsemen ducks Hogan’s semi-extended right leg, going behind Hollywood. When the vet turns around, he walks right into a kick to the midsection and an implant DDT! After the ensuing count by Anderson – which gets to nine before both men get back to their feet – the two men go into that slow, feeling out brawl. While to nobody’s surprise Hogan starts to get the advantage early on, Storm is resilient and fights back, his stiff chops and forearm strikes forcing Hogan to back off. While they’re not enough to knock the big man down, they subdue him so Hogan cannot dominate the brawl with his overhead right hands.

Storm keeps his offensive streak going, switching gears from stiff strikes to technique, as he lets Hogan swing away with punches. Storm keeps ducking and evading Hollywood’s strikes, tiring Hogan out and putting himself in the prime position to be taken down with a fujiwara arm bar takedown, and locks him in the hold. Hogan is able to escape the fujiwara arm bar moments later, but he eventually staggers up to his feet… right into a Super Kick! Hollywood Hogan collapses to his back in dramatic fashion, and taking the moment in, Storm looks at the fallen Hogan, and then around the arena before locking eyes on the top turnbuckle. Knowing he’ll need something extra to finish off thee Hulk Hogan, Storm climbs up to the top turnbuckle, looking for that finishing blow. After getting his feet settled, Storm looks up and leaps off… Flying 360 Leg Drop… misses! Hogan rolls out of the way, and slowly gets up to his feet, Storm having crashed and burned. As the Hulkster looks at the fallen Storm, he quickly hits the ropes before coming back at the Canucker… Leg Drop… OF DOOM~! Hogan connects, and his ensuing pin fall is academic, 1-2-3, and Hulk Hogan wins.

Hulk Hogan def. Lance Storm at 10:01

The crowd heatedly boos the finish, not a fan of Hollywood Hogan emerging victorious. However, it is the fate we must accept. Hogan should be thrilled to just escape here with a victory, but Hulk has something else in mind… a tagging. Hogan points to an “nWo stagehand” and gets tossed his can of spray paint. Hogan shakes the can of spray paint and rolls Storm over onto his stomach, but ‘The Enforcer’ Arn Anderson hops into the ring, and here comes the rest of the Four Horsemen! WCW President, ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair leads the charge, ‘The Iceman’ Dean Malenko and ‘The Enforcer’ Cal Anderson right next to him. His back bothering him, ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels brings up the rear. Hogan’s reinforcements are right there though, as Mike Awesome and Curt Hennig jump the guardrail from one side of the ring, The Outsiders form another side, and Jeff Jarrett comes out from the side of the crowd opposite the entrance ramp. The New World Order boys stand on one side of the ring, and the Four Horsemen stand on the other. The two factions make no movement to fight, instead just having a heated stare down, the crowd buzzing, wanting action.

Tony Schiavone: It’s a stalemate!

Mike Tenay: That’s right, Tony! Hulk Hogan wanted to humiliate Lance Storm and spray paint him, but the Four Horsemen ride together, fans! They’re not letting one of their own get attacked by the New World Order, but the nWo isn’t letting the Four Horsemen have their way either!

Tony Schiavone: These two sides are not going to back down, Professor! The New World Order are here to take over, fans, and they’re out to destroy the Four Horsemen!

Mike Tenay: The Four Horsemen are here to save us all though, and at Sin, these two sides are going to collide! So much is hanging in the balance this Sunday night!

Tony Schiavone: It’s going to be one of the biggest pay per views in the history of World Championship Wrestling, so be sure to order!

Mike Tenay: I have to inform you all now, that fans, we are out of time for Wednesday Nitro. This is all we are allowed to show you, but if you think that Nitro is finished, think again! Up next, you know what is coming… it’s a parking lot fight between Booker T and Scott Steiner!

Tony Schiavone: World Championship Wrestling does not condone or sanction what you may watch, so fans, watch at your own risk!

We get one last shot of the Four Horsemen and the New World Order staring each other down until we take out final…


When Nitro returns, we know where we are.

The Parking Lot Fight

They’ve hyped the crap out of the violence that is going to happen, but let’s be honest, it won’t be violent at all.

Booker T is standing in the circle of cars, still waiting for Scott Steiner.

Scott Steiner: Let’s go, you son of a bitch!

Scott Steiner sprints into the shot, leaping in between the side of two cars, joining the circle of cars. Booker T sprints right back at him, and the two collide head on! Booker and Steiner stagger back, and then jump right at each other again. What follows is heated brawling, the two men throwing quick, stiff punches at any open spot they can hit on the others body. Neither Booker or Steiner are trying to defend from the other, instead both just slugging it out. Booker T is able to get his body under Steiner’s shoulders, and drives him backwards, slamming him onto the hood of a car! Booker mounts Steiner and starts ripping into the World Heavyweight Champion with huge right hands, the wrestlers and staff around them hollering and cheering like prison inmates at fresh meat. Yeah, horrible comparison.

Big Poppa Pump shoves Booker off of him, and Steiner staggers up to his feet, blood trickling out of his forehead. Booker charges right back at him, but Steiner is ready for it, twisting and slamming Booker onto the hood! It’s Steiner who mounts Booker T this time, and he starts drilling Book with heavy lefts and rights too.

The action continues on the two men tumbling off the hood of the car and back into the circle, still just beating the bloody piss out of each other. As Steiner and Booker continue to just punch one another continuously, Mike Tenay’s voice can be heard one last time.

Mike Tenay: Fans, I am sorry, but time is up! Remember, Sin is coming up in just four days, this Sunday night! Contact your local pay per view providers; Sin starts at 8PM Eastern Standard Time, and it’s going to be a wild one! …My God, those two are still going at it!

As Steiner and Booker T continue to rip into each other, the show then cuts to black…

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

WCW Wednesday Nitro

Opening- Ric Flair Promo time. I like where the Horseman/N.W.O Angle is going. I must say this angle is putting Lance Storm into the main event scene which I am a fan of by the way. Hogan is dead on here, so no complaints here. I love me some Hollywood. Another high profile match set for Nitro, good choice in the picking of Hogan vs. Storm. Never seen it before really and that’s why I miss WCW, they pulled these big stunts on Nitro that worked out. Storm is over with the crowd and he vs. Hogan seems like a good idea for Nitro I have no doubt Hogan pulls off the win though.

Interesting Tag match man. Awesome tagging with Helms. I am really into the Chavo/Helms feud. I think it will deliver at the PPV man. Nice finish, Chavo gets DQ’d but comes out lookin the stronger. Awesome kills Konnan on the outside. Damn Awesome Bomb on the ramp. Good moment. The Filthy Animals all have title shots at Sin. Could be a good night, a great night, or a bad night…depending on your mood man.

Scott Steiner is a pimp! The man delivers a great promo, the only way Steiner can. Looking very forward to this street fight. Steiner/Booker T. feud is heating up here heading into their big blow off at Sin. I’m predicting Steiner retains and moves on to other challenges.

Back and Jeff Jarrett is on Promo duty in the New world Order locker room. I like how you have Jarrett talk about the title reminding us that it’s the only thing he cares about. Good building up for the Dean Malenko/Jeff Jarrett match at Sin. This feud will extend beyond Sin. Very good build. Slap Nut Jarret is great stuff.

Triple Threat leading into the Sin match. Again I’m hoping The Thrillseekers drop those titles ASAP, put it on The Young Lions…lol Good three way. Palumbo picks up the win but I’m guessing Filthy Animals win the belts at Sin…as Long as its not the Thrillseekers.

Arn pumps up the horseman and Hugh Morrus. Like Anderson in this role man. The six man should be good. Jericho promo…next week….YES! The Six man looks good. Not a bad match. N.W.O. pulls off the win but doesn’t pin a horsemen. Sounds good. Like how Jarrett ran from Dean, puts Malenko over here.

Hogan vs. Lance Storm turned out to be a pretty good match up. As expected we have Storm doing the job. The Horsemen/N.W.O brawl to end things. Nothing wrong here man. Good build for Sin.

Good old fashion streetfight between steiner and Booker T., But like always we have run out of time…just like back in the day. Good show man.

Here are my predictions for Sin
Current Card for Sin – Sunday, January 27, 2002
WCW World Heavyweight Championship – Scott Steiner © vs. Booker T
WCW North American Championship – Mike Awesome © vs. Konnan
WCW Tag Team Championship – Natural Born Thrillers © vs. Filthy Animals vs. Young Lions

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Nitro Feedback

I must say a lengthy bit of commentary at the start to open the show; you get points from me though because you kept Schiavone comments to a minimum. Flair is well typical Flair I think you get him down on the mic quite well I really do. This was smartly done for him to hype up the new matches made for Sin. Glad you have given some mic time to Shawn Michaels as in my mind he is the main draw at the moment. Michaels was well the same as Flair pretty darn good however was not to sure about the line where he said Nash told him Nash was his bitch. It seemed like a cheap pop and well there is nothing wrong with them but I just didn’t really like this one because I am thinking of it practically and I doubt Nash was whispering to HBK that he was his bitch I know I kind of ventured there but I had to think of an excuse because I don’t even know why I didn’t like the line I just, well didn’t. Hogan was short and sharp just how I like it as there is only so many dudes, brothers and jacks I can take before I have had enough. Nash I guess just gets his little cheap shots at HBK and The Horsemen as well and by the sounds of Nash calling HBK a backstabber I can see these two meeting again perhaps one on one at a PPV in the future. LOL at Scott Hall on the mic, you were playing the slang well but at first I thought it was Booker T talking I went back over and realized how it does actually sound like Hall but I don’t know I felt like you played on the slang perhaps a little bit to much which may have made it a tad difficult to read. Nash with an empty thread I think everyone including me knows that they will be competing at Sin I don’t even know if there was a use of Nash saying that. Now I understand why that was said I retract my previous statement and the stipulation of a World Heavyweight Title match for whoever receives the pinfall could mean some drama between the NOW. This is probably Flair’s plan and I really think it could work; it shall be interesting to see where you go with it. Very stacked Nitro for tonight now with the matches that have been announced once again looks like it is going to be awesome show and it started with yet another epic promo. Congrats on the greatness of this Szum, you continue to impress me.

Awesome no pun intended opening contest LOL at the K Dawg as I think by reading some of the things you have said about him during your shows that we agree on the lack of talent the guy has. Chavo snapping and attacking Helms with a chair was a nice touch because usually Helms’ opponents are always the ones injured, he gets some what of a taste of his own medicine. Awesome dominating Konnan and giving him an Awesome Bomb on the ramp made me smile I loved it, just wanted to comment on the overall progression of Helms in this thread and I must say he goes amazingly well. You know who to push and who not to push. I like it. I said taste of own medicine and well that is what you made Schiovane say, I don’t know what has come of myself I may not be able to continue…..


Steiner interview was nice I liked the way you had him seem very angry here as well he should be after what happened to his brother. On this hand however I really liked Steiner calling Booker a bitch because it is just so Scott Steiner like and I think that is why I didn’t like Michaels saying it earlier he is more of a friendly type of guy it was totally unexpected. Steiner volatile and violent equals great.

Now time for a Jarrett interview I found it rather amusing that he had to buy his own camera man but who really cares he has the money anyway. Again with the bitch LOL was some female giving you some trouble as you wrote this show Nah in all seriousness Jarrett was pretty in character I liked how you had a certain intensity to his character as sometimes he comes across as just all talk. This however made me think otherwise, I would still enjoy Malenko kicking his ass though.

Would be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy the second match up as well, I am quite the fan of Palumbo and Jindrak so seeing this happens was pretty bloody exciting. Spot fest is usually the go when Mysterio is in the ring so yeah had that down right. I was quite happy to see Palumbo getting the win but even though Palumbo and Mysterio have got the little peace thing going on I would have preferred for Jindrak to not get pinned. But I guess you had your reasons for it…

The Horsemen getting ready and well Hugh Morrus and UUGGGHHHH I don’t know if this is just a phase in this thread or if you are serious about giving Morrus a push but I really don’t like the guy and I pray that Hennig goes over him at Sin. Otherwise I may have to block you on msn tbh.


Awesome third match just because of how much of it is involved with the PPV I found it to be a good read as most of your matches are tbh. I would just like to say is that Morris getting isolated is bad LOL because it means he was in the ring for a fair amount of time, that automatically loses ratings for me. Was quite happy to see Morris get pinned by Jarrett, just shows us all that Jarrett can go and shows me what I wanted Morris to be doing. Jobbing … After the match was good with Jarrett breaking the guitar and using the neck to fend off the opponents, creativity is great.

Booker T getting ready gets the hype ready I just wish I could skim the main event and go straight to the parking lot but I can’t do that it would be scandalous. Or did I do that and I am just not telling you??? Ahhh the suspense…

Nice ten minute main event anytime you make reading a Hogan match exciting recap or full, you should be proud of yourself. Shattered that Storm didn’t get the win but I guess your doing the WCW thing to us and putting the old talent over, then again I shouldn’t really say that because the old WCW wouldn’t have had Storm or Malenko in the main event. Anyway niceness again and the face off afterwards was exciting.

Parking Lot brawl was exciting however I would be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed with us being cut off right before the middle of it. However nice brutal ness with both men bloodying the other and well leaves a lot of unanswered questions for Sin tbh.

Overall Szum another great show and these messages at the bottom of reviews are pointless because I am always telling you how good you are. What about this one? Roddick shall lose

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Panic! Review

- Very good opening to the show by having Ric Flair along with the members of The Four Horsemen kicking off the show. I really enjoyed reading the Flair promo as it was very realistic and also liked how "HBK" Shawn Michaels was able to gain some mic time in the ring...but I knew that the New World Order would ruin it! It was good to read some mic time from Hollywood Hogan and quite surprisingly Scott Hall and both were very good promos. I'll absolutely enjoy the two matches that Flair has just booked on the card and it will be very interesting to see how further this feud goes between the nWo and The Four Horsemen. Good opening and looks such a great card for tonight already.

- Alright opening tag team match for Nitro as I guess it does keep the feuds going, especially the CW Title feud between Helms/Chavito which I'm currently enjoying so this match should actually be good. It was going OK until the DQ finish which I was completely surprised at in a good way . Liked what happened straight after the match and that Awesome Bomb to Konnan onto the stage made me chuckle a little since I loved how Awesome was able to do the move so perfectly. Things not so good for the Animals...but I guess that Chavito loved smashing that chair over Helms . Can't wait until their PPV match.

- Good promo time from Scott Steiner despite standing being with his who...I mean valet, valet . Loved everything that Steiner mentioned in this promo and makes me excited later for this parking lot match between Booker T/Steiner. I can sense some sort of twist coming up when it approaches since their PPV match is only four days away but we'll see.

- Definitely my favourite promo time of the night and it was of course from "The Chosen One" Jeff Jarrett. I think that after what he said in this promo, I think that he'll be the WCW World Heavyweight Champion again possibly in a few months but only time will tell since apparently a "screwjob" will happen at the WCW Sin PPV in his match with Dean Malenko. Brilliant promo time and it makes me hyped up for his PPV match with Malenko in four days time.

- Very awesome match that happened here and I quite enjoyed the action that went on in this match. Very shocked that Palumbo got the win but the tag team division in WCW is absolutely CRAZY after the action continued after the match. I'm going for the Rey and Kidman to win the Titles, but I guess that we'll all have to wait until the PPV.

- Nice what went on here and actually glad that Hugh Morrus actually got time to talk this week leading to his match with Curt Hennig at the WCW Sin PPV. Should be interesting to see what will happen in this six man tag team match.

- Please, I'm literally begging you, I beg you! Please make this be Chris Jericho!

- Brilliantly produced this third match was and liked everything that went on and also liked how the bad group of the nWo were able to gain the win over Morrus and the rest of The Four Horsemen members in this match since it makes them look even more heelish before WCW Sin approaches. Very creative how Double J smashed the guitar and used the neck to get the hell out of the ring and fend off the three hungry men from taking him out and kicking his ass! Overall, I can't wait until the Double J/Malenko match approaches for Sin.

- Really really....RRRRREEEEEAAAAALLLLLLLLLYYYYYYY thought that the Canadian, Lance Storm was actually going to pick up the win over "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan but then again, everyone knows that Hogan loves to push himself over with wins, entrances, and his air guitar so I like how you're keeping that realistic. I really did think that it was a good match though and after what went on after the match, things really do look heated up for the WCW Sin PPV!

- Very disappointed how this match was cut off but I guess that the show did run out of time...but it was a very good "bloody" fight that I personally would've enjoyed watching myself.

Notes - My thoughts? I really did enjoy this edition of WCW Wednesday Night Nitro, especially since everything is starting to heat up between the nWo and The Four Horsemen with the WCW Sin PPV only four days away in this time period. I like how much hype you've put into this while we all head into Sin with feuds which of course lead into matches at the PPV already looking quite great. Your promos also seem to be of such greatness as I like to read them each and everytime you post Nitro. The show was great though, nice opening, remarkable promos, good matches, and of course another video which is hopefully Y2J but the only thing disappointing was the ending of the show but I guess the TV station ran out of time. Shifting aside from that, I really enjoyed this edition of Nitro and I am definitely and already pumped up for the Sin PPV when it is posted, nice show and good matches on the Sin card and I will be posting match predicitions and I will also of course be reviewing! Nice job

Total Rating - 9/10

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Nitro Review:

Glad to see the usual commentary to open up the show, with you taking every opportunity possible to make Tony sound like the idiot we all know and love. You did a good job hyping up the two matches announced on the preview, as both the Grudge Match and Six-Man Tag are going to be awesome. Can’t wait to see what goes down between the Horsemen and New World Order tonight.

What a way to start the show, as the Four Horsemen are obviously pleased with Shawn Michaels winning his match last week, giving them even more momentum heading into Sin. I loved how Flair hyped up each and every member of Horsemen, telling the nWo just what they are in for at Sin. HBK’s little speech was good too, until the bad boys make the appearance, giving us another huge show down between these two awesome factions. LMAO at Nash saying that he, Hogan, and Hall aren’t going to show up at Sin. Flair fires back in an awesome way by talking about what Bischoff did to him in ’98, giving us a very good shoot. Huge implications added for the Six-Man Tag, with the winner getting a World Title shot next week on Nitro. Love the added incentive, as I can see any number of different matches taking place next week. Two more big matches announced for tonight, as the Six-Man should be good, but I am really looking forward to seeing how well Storm does against Hogan. Great way to start the show, as I’m sure the matches are gonna OWN.

Nice way to start the in-ring action, with the other two members of the Filthy Animals taking on Helms and Awesome. Surprised that Konnan got so much time in the ring, seeing as you usually don’t like to make him look good. But the numbers eventually catch up, with Konnan beginning to get beaten down. Finally Chavo gets into the ring, taking it to Helms, while K-Dawg and Mike roll to the outside. Loved that Chavo got DQ’d for using the chair, getting some payback on the man who beat him down last week. Hopefully Konnan getting Awesome Bombed doesn’t mean he is winning on Sunday … because I would be super pissed if that happened.

You must just love to write Steiner, because you do it so well! Perfectly in character and he just did what was expected, run down the feud with Booker before promising to destroy him. Hopefully the Parking Lot Brawl isn’t a disappointment, but then again, you don’t want to give too much away just four days before Sin.

FINALLY we get some mic time from the man who has owned in this thread ever since he became World Champion. Loved that Jarrett said he had to buy a camera man to film this promo, but it makes sense because of all that Flair has done to him. JJ is certainly intent on beating Malenko back into retirement on Sunday but I think he may be a little too cocky. Hopefully we will get a little preview of what’s to come when they meet in the Six-Man Tag later tonight.

Very good triple threat men between three of the six men wrestling for the illustrious Tag Team Titles at Sin. Palumbo and Rey are able to stay on the same page in the early going, but that all ends when they both try and get the win. Liked the action throughout, especially the brawls between the four men not involved on the outside. Jindrak is able to get back into control towards the end, planting Rey with a huge move, but then Chuck steals the pin! Great way for the aftermath to go, with all six men wrestling getting into it, as the Animals get the final laugh, taking down five men with planchas. If this is any indication of what the match will be like at Sin, we should be in for a treat.

Good little - “filler”, as you put it - segment to show that the Horsemen and Morris are on the same page. It should be a very hot tag match coming up next, which hopefully will end with the Horsemen and Morris getting yet another one over on the nWo.

Hopefully it will be Jericho coming back next week … because I really hope you aren’t just pulling our legs.

Pretty much what I expected from the Six-Man Tag Team Match, but not really who I thought would get the win. I’m glad that everyone got the chance to be in the ring, and the fact that Morris took the fall probably means that he will beat Hennig this Sunday night. Jarrett looked awesome in this match, pretty much untouched before he got the win. The brawl broke down unlike other brawls that involve the nWo, in that the faces got the advantage and forced the three heels to retreat up the ramp. The best thing about this match? Scott Hall’s involvement was VERY limited. I always love to see that.

Obviously the brawl in the parking lot is going to end the show, as Steiner will probably try and attack Booker from behind. Glad to see a lot of WCW employees out there, ready to see the two men in the Main Event of Sin rip each other apart.

Loved the way that the Main Event was done, as Hogan actually sold the awesome offense of Storm, acting like Lance actually had a chance to win the match. Storm was close on numerous attempts, looking like he was going to be the legend, but Hogan got the momentum back at the right times, stopping Lance from winning the match. Great way to finish the contest, with Storm trying to go for it all only to crash and burn. Classic way to end the match in favor of Hogan, with Hollywood bouncing off the ropes and dropping the leg, giving him a huge victory. The “stalemate” after the contest was great, as well, with these two huge factions set to collide on Sunday, and we have no idea who is going to come out on top!

Pretty much how we expected the brawl to go, with both men laying into each other and nothing really getting resolved, as both took some wicked shots on the cars. Just wanna say that this feud has been all right, but if you didn’t have the huge nWo-Horsemen storyline going, it would be a pretty lackluster top feud, tbh. But you know that everyone is into the “faction feud”, so it’s all right that Steiner-Booker hasn’t been spectacular. With that being said, this was a great way to give the match the final hype it needed.

Another amazing show, Szumi, you continue to impress me each and every time you post a show. Sin is going to be a huge PPV and I will be sure to give you my {correct} predictions once the preview is posted. Keep up the stellar work, bud.

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Nitro Review/Feedback:

Sorry about being so late on this one, Szum, but I've been busy with my own project and have finally gotten some time to review some shows, and this was the first.

~Jarrett/Malenko & nWo/Horsemen announced is sexy, tbh, and it needed those matches to pile up it's card. A little surprised at how late it took to be announced, but it obviously was going to, and needed to be announced.

~Pretty good opening promo to start, but for some reason or another, whether the nWo wins or not, (I don't think they will) Hogan will cash in HIS title shot seconds after whoever wins the title on the next Nitro. That may be too in-depth, but it would be epically huge, and Hogan deserves that strap. Alright, he doesn't, but it'd plain out own. Two tag team matches where the opponents face each other before the PPV, overkill much? If anything have Hennig and Malenko mix up along with Morris and Jarrett. They better at least be good, boyo.

~Brilliant booking decision with the tag-team match, tbh. Chavo looks strong by taking down Helms while Helms still picks up the win. I don't care for Konnan so him getting beaten down is Awesome as well. (pun somewhat intended )

~Yay for Steiner. I'm excited for the PLB later, but keep this feud going for more then one PPV plz. Have Steiner win by DQ or something so we get more time of this awesome feud.

~Hype promo by Jarrett, but keep him out of the Heavyweight title scene for the time being. You know that I love the Steiner/Booker feud, so he should stay in the nWo/Horsemen feud until that feud ends.

~Palumbo sucks. Jindrak I haven't really seen of, so the only one I'm interested in this match is Mysterio. Exciting contest for what it is worth, gets a lot of time, and although I despise Palumbo winning, hopefully he won't win the tag-team titles on Sunday, or I'll be pissed. Jesus, this clusterfuck of a feud better end soon, pissing me off Palumbo is getting any time, let alone a title shot.

~Meh, filler.

~Jericho plz. If it's not I'll kill ya. Jarrett going over and the promo he delivered earlier tells me that he's going to be back in the heavyweight title picture sooner rather than later, although I don't know if I approve. Jarrett/Malenko should be a good match, but I fully expect Malenko to put Jarrett over.

~As much as I'd like to have seen Storm go over, there was no chance that Hogan was going to lose. Ok, there was a little chance, but the nWo is gonna look strong going into the PPV, especially if they're going to lose at Sin.

~Damn you ending the PLB before it got finished. I had expected this to be longer, but in reality I can see why you ended it short, not wanting to give away too much before the PPV. I don't like it, but it isn't dumb.

8.5/10, tbh

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Heyman Deciple’s Nitro Review

Horsemen-n.W.o: Good opening everyone was really in character. Shawn Michaels was especially on point and any time Hogan says let me tell you something, Brother. I mark out. Flair’s call back to 98 was good too and I can’t wait for the Hogan-Lance Storm main event.

Chavo & Konnan Vs. Awesome & Helms: Konnan actually has talent, shocking. LMAO. Solid match too bad it ended it a disqualification but it furthered the storyline of Helms and Guerrero plus Konnan getting awesome bombed on the entrance ramp is well Awesome.

Steiner Interviews: Big Poppa Pump interviews are always fun. This was solid, it’s just he seemed a little more rationale than I expected.

Jarrett Promo: I liked the line about having to pay off his own cameraman; it gave this a sense of realism, which I liked. Good promo from Jarrett all around. He put over his match with Dean Malenko at Sin as well as his hunger to once again be World heavyweight champion no matter who he has to take it from. Maybe that leads to a little dissention within the New World Order somewhere down the road.

Palumbo Vs. Jindrak Vs. Misterio: Damn it Palumbo wins, I was hoping for a big Jindrak win. He was always one of my favorite thrillers. Well him and Mike Sanders. Fun little match though followed up by a post match brawl.

Horsemen-Hugh Morrus: I’ve never really been a huge fan of Hugh Morrus but this served it’s purpose as it got over Hugh’s hatred for Curt Hennig.

Video: This was all so awesome. I liked the call back to his old Champagne nickname during the Russo and Ferrera run. I’ve always been a huge fan of the guy. Can’t wait till he makes his return.

6 Man Tag: Hall throwing his toothpick at a kid was funny. Good 6 man match with Jarrett picking up the win followed by another post match brawl, which sends the n.W.o. out of the ring.

Booker T: I like the visual with the parking lot and all the cars with the headlights and Booker shadow boxing. Scott Steiner’s arrival with this visual would be something to see.

Hogan Vs. Storm: He’s the match I’ve been waiting to see. It is great that Storm is getting an opportunity at Hogan. Hogan selling Lance’s offense? What alternate universe is this match taking place in, first Konnan has talent, now this. Storm came off really well here, Hogan get’s the win but Lance was made to look super strong by looking so good and coming so close to defeating the Hulkster. After the match we get an n.W.o. and Horsemen stand off, which I liked.

Parking Lot: What kind of ending was that? Don’t get me wrong I like it as it leaves you wanting more and it was unexpected.

Good show, my favorite part had to be the Hogan-Storm match as well as the hype video for the returning star, and the Booker-Steiner brawl.

I give this a 9 out of 10.

Good show, Szumi.

Not currently watching WWE... I refuse to continue to be part of the problem by supporting something I do not enjoy.

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Been a while since I dropped in...

Opening promo went for as long as one of your drought's tbh, but it did have a fair bit going on so I'll let it slide.
As usual, everyone was well in character and it all came together quite well, Hugh Morris doing something of note later tonight? My God. Good matches announced by Flair too and Scott Hall on the mic always equals an epic win. HBK was down pat to a tee really, a mix of his newer side and some of the attitude he had when he was younger thrown in worked well. Overall good if a little long opening to the show. Oh and Schiavone, makes a Michael Cole/Don West teaming sound good imo

Helms getting some of his own medicine but the real story is Awesome sending a message by fucking up K-Dawg. Awesome owned, so I'm all for him doing such things. Don't you dare make him lose to Konnan, but I'm sure you're smarter than that. Chavo to beat Helms at Sin too plz

Steiner promo was trademark BPP, nothing more really. I always mark for Steiner's foul mouth

Jarrett promo was class. Extremely well written stuff here, very impressive. Jarrett will beat Malenko no doubt, but I don't think he'll be near the WCW title afterwards. Anyways, this was one strong promo from him and you captured him very well here, good stuff

Chaotic triple threat match here, all their partners involved too made it even wilder. Good stuff for a TV match too and this is gonna be one of the highlights of Sin tbh, the match has the potential to steal the show if this is anything to go by

Fuck Morris, Mr. Perfect will own him at Sin. Plz?

Lions will be tamed? Jericho?

Scott Hall taking that jobber Morris to school, good stuff. Decent match recap and it was obvious Jarrett would get the fall on Morris. Can't see anything but Double J and Henning winning their matches come Sin, but what is Mr. Alco-Hall doing?

Solid main event, Storm got a good rub out of it. But I have to ask where was the BACK RAKE OF DOOM? Oh and
As the Hulkster looks at the fallen Storm, he quickly hits the ropes

Random-ish ending to the night with the Booker/Steiner fight in the parking lot, just a way to build their feud which has been largely on the backburner tonight I guess

Not up to your usual high standards, but still solid as always Nicky

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Sunday, January 27, 2002
The Pyramid, Backstage, Memphis, Tennessee

It was that time again. The Trio Dual Owners of World Championship Wrestling are back once more in a makeshift office, talking about the affairs of our beloved WCW. Kind of convenient how they always seem to have one of these talks at pay-per-view time, huh? It’s like it’s forced and made up!

Eric Bischoff: Alright Ric, let’s just get right down to business.

Ric Flair: You want business? Alright Eric, here’s the deal. We’re still losing money! You bringing back all of your boys – Hogan, Nash, Scott Hall – they have big contracts. Yeah, they’re not making as much money as they were in the old WCW, but it’s still a big chunk of money that we don’t have.

Eric Bischoff: Already, Ric? Seriously? Are we going to start this already?

Ric Flair: What? I’m not starting shit, Bischoff; I’m tellin’ you the straight facts. Your boys are making too much money, and it’s drowning out our funds.

Eric Bischoff: Maybe they are making more money than we should be paying them, but at least they’re not pushing for political control, they’re going with what we decide, and the crowd hasn’t turned against them. They boo them because they’re heels, not because they just hate them. At least they’re good for TV.

Ric Flair: If they’re so great for TV, then how come sponsors are still backing out?

Eric Bischoff: Ric, we both know what the problem is with the sponsors. It’s not the roster, it’s not the product, it’s us. You and me, we cannot run this company together – it isn’t working. We can’t get along, and our past has come back to haunt us… ever since Fall Brawl.

Ric Flair: Heh, you wonder why we have problems? Look at you, Eric! You have to keep bringing that up at every turn! I did one thing, but this is all you now, Bischoff. I haven’t done shit to fuck this company up; that’s been all you! You’re supposed to have the business experience and history to get – and keep – sponsors, but I don’t see you doing a damn thing!

Ah, a bitter topic. Over the past few months, sponsors have been dropping like flies, as previously conversed about. By the new year, Domino’s remained a major sponsors, while only Gatorade, Reebok, and Slim Jim remained as minor sponsors.

Eric Bischoff: Look, I can’t help it that Reebok wanted out of the deal! I know that losing another sponsor is going to cost us a lot of money, but damn it, Ric, what do you want me to do!?

There was a long pause where both men actually stayed silent, biting their tongue to avoid responding with a petty insult.

Ric Flair: …Alright, let’s get serious. What can we do here? What can we do to keep this ship afloat?

Bischoff quickly looked through some of his papers and ruffled his hair.

Eric Bischoff: At this point, I’m not even sure anymore. I mean, WCW can stay operating for at least another few months – we still have a few sponsors, we have our ticket sales, merchandise, and pay per view, and we still have the most important thing: NBC’s TV deal and the money they’re providing us – but if we can’t replace all these lost sponsors, we’re fucked.

Ric Flair: What about us? Can’t we use more of our own money to fund WCW?

Eric Bischoff: It’s a possibility, but Ric, let me be perfectly honest: if you or I dig deeper into our own pockets, we’re putting our financial security at risk. I know I’ll be digging all my retirement money out of the bank and putting it into WCW if I use any more of my own money. What if that fails? Our life savings, it would never be a permanent solution to the problem: it would keep the company open for a few more months, but if the sponsors weren’t replaced, we’d be back where we are now. Do you see what that means?

Ric Flair: Yeah, I do. WCW is still a dying company, and we have no money for our families. We’re bankrupt, and I couldn’t put Ashley or Reid through college, anything.

Eric Bischoff: I love this company, but I cannot risk my family’s future on it any more than I already have.

Ric Flair: Neither can I.

Again, a moment of silence took over the two men. Finally, Ric Flair banged his hands off of the desk in front of him.

Ric Flair: Damn it! This isn’t fair! We’ve done so much, we’ve worked so hard! This isn’t the shithole company it was when we bought it last year! We’re actually competing with Vince again!

Eric Bischoff: I know. We’ve taken Nitro from the low 2.0’s it was averaging this time last year, and we’re getting consistent 3.5 to 4.5’s in the Neilson ratings. The WWF, they average 4.5 to 5.0 on Monday, but we’ve been getting on them. Hell, the January 7 and January 9 shows, we beat Raw in the ratings! The Four Horsemen angle, we got a 5.1 for that show! Vince only got a 4.9 that week. The next week, we won again too: 4.6 to 4.4!

Ric Flair: …We gotta find a way to get that money! We can compete with Vince; we can be number one again!

Flair looks expectantly at Bischoff, almost as if he will have an answer to all the problems. However, Eric simply looks down at his feet, knowing he really has nothing. WCW may be competitive, but with no money, it means nothing. While suggestions are made to keep the company afloat, the fact remains sponsors keep fleeing, and money is drying up, fast.

As Bischoff continues to sit in silence, Flair grows aggravated, becoming upset with Bischoff’s inability to provide anything to help WCW. Displacing his aggravation for that old, intense hatred, Flair mumbles,

Ric Flair: …I can’t believe you put us in this mess.

Bischoff slowly raises his head to look at Flair, only to see Ric’s eyes closed, shaking his head in disgust and disappointment. Unable to believe Flair’s persistence that this predicament is all the fault of Bischoff, Eric simply sits up from his chair, and walks out of the room, leaving the situation before another argument can fire up.

What match will have the lowest star rating?
Not going to post an elaborate preview for the pay per view… just the predictions contest. As per usual, the winner of the contest gets to book a match for a Nitro. Dunno when Sin will be up, by the way, all depends on how I write it. I wanted to write an extended recap where each match would hopefully be the length of a Nitro main event, but I just cannot get inspired to write that, so the PPV could very well end up with its entirety being recapped fairly quickly. We shall see.

Oh, and to the kiddies I owe feedback to, it will come in due time. Honest, I promise. I just have a lot of stuff going on, so I'm not getting a lot of BTB shit done right now, as evidenced by having nothing done for Sin yet.
